A message from Brig. Gen. John W. Heltzel, director of Kentucky Division of Emergency Management (KYEM).
“Although the state and local governments are expected to assist the public during times of emergencies and disasters, preparedness starts at home. In the event of large scale disasters the government may be unable to respond immediately."
"Be prepared! You should have at least a three day supply of food and water for each member of your family, along with essentials such as: medicines, flash lights, radio, extra batteries, matches, candles, first aid supplies, etc.”
"Have a plan and practice it. Share your plan with relatives, friends and someone you know living in another state."
